Vanuatu, one of the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) within the ACP, has been on the radar of the international community in 2012. In addition to Port Vila hosting the 95th meeting of the Council of Ministers ACP and the 37th session of the ACP-EU Council of Ministers, the country has also at long last become one of the newest members of the WTO. We had the opportunity to have a long talk with HE Roy Mickey Joy, Vanuatu's ambassador to the EU. In this, the first part of the interview, he gives his impressions on the most recent and future developments that are necessary at the ACP Group Level.

Climate change - both natural and anthropogenic - will lead to significant global and local changes in the near future. Agriculture is contributing significantly to GHG emmissions, but will also be among the sectors most severely impacted by changes in climate patterns. Climate change will affect all four dimensions of food security: food availability, food accessibility, food utilization and food systems stability.
The next Brussels Development Briefing  will  focus on ‘Climate change, agriculture and food security: proven approaches and new investments’.
It will address issues related to agriculture and food security in a changing climate, and how agriculture can increase resilience to climate change effects. In particular, it will: (i) raise awareness in ACP countries on the key challenges posed to agriculture by climate changes; (ii) increase exchange of information and expertise on strategies to develop climate-smart agriculture and proven successes; and (iii) facilitate networking among development partners.
The briefing, wich will be held on 27 September, 2012, will be organized in collaboration with the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).
Around 120 ACP-EU policy-makers and representatives of EU Member States, civil society groups, research networks and development practitioners, and international organizations based in Brussels.
